    mainly just noise. i don;t think you can get an after market water box for an fxho. just a free flow. either way, the yammi boxes are not as restrictive as some others as far as i can tell.

    I actually have a fx waterbox that I could sell you if you want something to play with. i could even gut it and weld it back up for a few dollars.

    From my understanding, there's no performance benefits to be had. it can actually be detrimental to performance as the waterbox gives the engine its required back pressure

    I thought I remember JD 1 saying he say a slight gain from modding his waterbox. Hmmm... let me see if I can dig it up.

    Generally with forced induction motors you want to get the exhaust gasses out and away as quickly as possible, but with NA motors they need to have the right back pressure

    Star,

    They make one for it? Or did you have them set it up for you?

    Here's a thread with lots of pics how to DIY on the SHO/FZ:

    I'm not sure what the results were, but Duke gutted the 1200 WB on SHOdude's conversion & it sounds bad ass.
